AccessToGo Remote Desktop - Free PlayBook RDP Client

When looking in the AppWorld for some new apps this one came up, AccessToGo Remote Desktop – RDP.
It is free to download and has some cool features like VMware View support.
App developer is Ericom, see link below for more.
They have their own RDP protocol, or RDP speed optimized software, but I only used the standard RDP protocol.
Ericom’s AccessToGo is a blazing fast mobile RDP client.
It provides free remote access to Windows desktops and applications running on terminal servers/RDS.
You can also quickly and easily access your home PC as well as virtual desktops hosted on Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESX, and other hypervisors.
AccessToGo supports BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 and it handles unlimited connections, intuitive document scrolling, and has native resolution support for all devices. It has 8 through 32 bit color modes, sound/audio redirection support, and is the only mobile RDP client that supports both touchpad and floating pointers.
It also has a unique Tablet Toolbar that displays popular keys (Esc, Tab, Ctrl, Alt, and Windows) and functions.
